Curren$y on the rap game: 'A lot of it you can do yourself'

Survivor is one of the few words one could use to describe New Orleans rapper Curren$y. With a over a decade in the business, grappling with flawed record deals that would discourage most emcees, Spitta has thrived.

Originally affiliated with Master P’s No Limit Camp as a teen, he then moved to the rival camp Cash Money/Young Money. Along with Lil Wayne, Curren$y began to develop his following as he was featured on numerous Weezy  projects which culminated to his first single  “Where Da Cash At?”. After some creative differences with Weezy and Birdman, Curren$y left Cash Money to pursue a solo career in 2007.

After leaving two major labels most rapper would’ve bowed out the industry and hang up their mic, but Curren$y saw this as hidden blessing to develop his own sound and find his voice. A few independent albums and mixtapes later,  he is now signed by Warner Bros and Curren$y is content with his journey. We asked Curren$y about what can hold someone back from success in the industry his response was about personal drive.

“Get out of the idea that you need some backing when you can pretty much do a ‘gang’ of it yourself. You put yourself on through the Internet…there is so much you can do for free,” he said.
